Mapping open school and census data in New York City

March 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The free, open-source python library, “nycschools”, makes it easier to work with and analyze open data regarding New York City Public Schools, including geospatial data. In this workshop the team behind the library, from Adelphi University’s MIXI Institute, shares their recent work creating maps that help understand school data in the context of the US Census. After presenting a series of maps and data visualizations we will offer a brief python tutorial to help participants make their own maps with school and/or census data.

No technical experience is necessary to attend, but there will be the opportunity to write some code and get started programming in an online environment.
